Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Microplastics could affect the long-term reproduction of Atlantic cod

Friday, February 03, 2023

Microplastic contamination can alter the sexual maturation of Atlantic cod due to an increase in gene expression of two genes, which could lead to long-term reproductive problems. This is clear from the results of a study led by researchers from the Marine Research Center of the University of Vigo, CIM-UVigo, María Fernández and Pablo Presa, from the Marine Genetic Resources Laboratory, together with researchers from the Norwegian Food Research Institute, Nofima, and the Universities of Aarhus (Denmark) and Tromsø (Norway).

To reach this conclusion, the researchers evaluated the effects of the inclusion of microplastics in the diet on the reproductive physiology of cod.

Other Media | SeafoodSource: Japanese consumers face more price hikes in 2023

Friday, February 03, 2023

Thousands of Japanese food processors, including Shizuoka-based tuna canner Hagoromo Foods Co., plan to raise prices in 2023.

In response to soaring prices of bonito and tuna, Hagoromo Foods already raised the prices of its products containing bonito as a main ingredient in July 2022, and its  products with tuna as a main ingredient in September 2022.

Since then, however, the yen has depreciated significantly, and prices of secondary materials such as cans and edible oil have soared, resulting in a significant increase in manufacturing costs.

IN BRIEF - Biden administration blocks controversial mine to protect major salmon fishery

Thursday, February 02, 2023

The Biden administration has blocked a controversial proposed gold and copper mine in Alaska in order to protect the world’s largest sockeye salmon fishery. 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) blocked construction for the Pebble Mine, citing its potential impact on Bristol Bay — a southwestern Alaska watershed that’s home to numerous animal species including the salmon.

EPA Administrator Michael Regan told reporters that the agency had determined that discharges that would come from the proposed mining would have “unacceptable adverse effects” on salmon fishery areas.

Specifically, the EPA’s action prohibits the certain waters from being used as disposal sites for mine waste and prohibits future proposals to mine the Pebble deposit that would have similar environmental impacts.

IN BRIEF - €37.3m for capital projects in Ireland’s fishery harbour centres

Thursday, February 02, 2023

Approximately 90% of all fish landings into Ireland come through these facilities.

€37.3m has been allocated for capital projects in 2023 in Ireland’s six state-owned fishery harbour centres.

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Charlie McConalogue said that these six centres - at Killybegs, Rossaveal, Dingle, Castletownbere, Dunmore East, and Howth - are "critical infrastructure" for the seafood industry. 

Mr McConalogue said that Ireland's 200-mile exclusive economic zone provides "rich nursery and fishing grounds" for its own fleet, and other EU fleets.

In 2021, approximately 88% of the sea fish landed into the state was landed into the six fishery harbour centres. 

For 2021, Bord Iascaigh Mhara reported that the Irish seafood industry contributed €1.26bn to the Irish economy.
